TMK9973 Posted January 2 Share Posted January 2 (edited) Bar argument started yesterday and will bring it to the forum. I'll start with positives. #3- 2007 Joe Gibbs challenging too many men in the field by the Bears. Redskins were 5-7 at the time and allowing too many men to be something you could challenge was only implemented that season with little fan fare. Redskins won the game and went to playoffs with a 9-7 record. #2- Joe Gibbs Benching Jay Schrader for Doug Williams halfway through a meaningless regular season final in 1987. This was not as obvious as it seems. Redskins we're 0-2 in games started by DW that year and 8-2 in games started by JS (although 4 of those games had DW finishing the games). JS had also taken the Skins to the NFC championship the year before. But the move worked out. #1- Joe Gibbs. 4th and 1 early in 4th qtr Super Bowl 17 and going for it and calling 70 chip. Honorable Mention - Starting Timmy Smith over George Rogers last second in the super bowl. Only HM because might not have mattered. The holes were huge, Smith never had a good game again, and George Rogers may have done just as well. Worst coaching calls ever. #3 2007- Joe Gibbs. Calling Back to Back Time Outs against the Bills before lining up for what would have been a game winning FG. 15 yard penalty, cost us the game. #2 2022 Ron Rivera. With the season on the line he benches the guy who has saved the season and had the team playing inspired football to put in the guy who was 2-4 and looks horrible for all but 2 QTRs in 6 games and didn't even realize the team could be eliminated with a loss. And even if fans and other experts argued for that call, I struggle to believe that there were not signs in practice that Wentz was going to be this bad. At a min it was clear at half time the team needed a spark and to save the season a move should have been made #1- 2012 Mike Shanahan. Wild card weekend. After breaking out to a 14-0 lead against the Seahawks, it was clear RG3 was hurt. Cousins had played that year and showed he was more the capable. But despite the entire country seeing as plan as day that RG3 needed to come out of the game, MS waiting until he had no choice, and by then it was too late Taking other nominations!
